What's better than chicken soup? Chicken and Mushroom Soup with Udon.


In a large saucepan, combine the dashi broth, mirin, soy sauce and sugar and bring to the boil.
Add the chicken fillets and mushroom and return to the boil.
Simmer, uncovered, until chicken is cooked (about 10 minutes)
Remove from heat and let broth cool for 10 minutes.
Remove chicken and cut into thin slices.
Reserve broth.

Cook noodles in boiling water until just tender.
Drain, then refresh under cold running water.
Drain well.

In 4 deep, oven proof, serving bowls (suitable for table use), divide noodles, chicken, spinach, bamboo shoots and carrot (so as each ingredient is placed seperately around each bowl).
Ladle over the mushroom and dashi broth.
Make a small hollow among the noodles (in each bowl) and break an egg into each hollow.
Place bowls of soup (uncovered) into a hot oven until egg just cooks (about 10 minutes).

Place bowls of soup on small plates.
Garnish with a sprinkling of spring onion.
Serve immediately.
